I know they?re high on Ian Wild but he?s injury prone....we need a wrecking ball MLB not a gap filler which apparently Hurl is good at.  So then it boils down to defensive scheming and coaching.....thoughts?

Must sign one of Dean, Taylor or Woods, hopefully in that order and another strong DB for us to be considered a GC contender. Sad to say, but it looks like Sask maybe a valid concern in the west this year.

They were a valid concern last year. How have they gotten better?

Not making the playoffs in the west does not make you a contender in the west. They have gotten better through the signings of Hughes, Zack C., DC, they will be a legitimate contender in the west (not eastern crossover) and may challenge for second place in the west. I can see Edmonton, Sask, Cal, and Wpg/BC fighting for the crossover. The Bombers need to upgrade their defence to much and by retaining Hall we will see a repeat of last year. Even with MOS having more to do with the defence this year, if he and Hall knew how to fix the defence they would have done it during last year.

How does signing Zach "Epic Yips" Collaros and retaining Carter - who's now dealing with off-field legal issues - make them better, much less a contender in the West? Both came at a substantial cost, much likes Hughes. He makes their D-line better but it means something has to give elsewhere on the roster.

I have absolutely no idea how a team retaining a player at a higher price makes it better. That's just a baffling comment.

It's weird how you pump the Riders tires over two FA signings but have absolutely no issue trashing the Bombers. You sound like a homered out flatbilly.

Hughes I guess, but a DE isn't going to make or break you.

Duron Carter was with them last year, and he may not be with them or anyone this year depending on how his two charges go.

Zach Collaros. lol. Yeah, real upgrade there. A guy who hasn't been good in two years, with health issues and a case of the yips. Based on that alone I can see the Riders getting worse.

If Walters fails to build a somewhat repectable defense, changes gotta be made

But I thought is was all schemes like many have ranted about on here for years nonstop  Tongue   Roll Eyes

I think they have regressed...I would say that Glenn last year will have been better than the big question mark Zack is this year.
They gained Hughes, but still have no bonafide DT option or depth for that matter, as well as zero Canadian depth on their dline signed..Mackena Henry is a joke and only one they have...and are going to be tight against the cap addressing it.

They lost Knox JR...Kacey Rogers...The Canadian Bouka and doubt Brouilette is back..even so he sucked

bagg is older and trending down..Demski good as gone..OTackle Campbell too I bet...possibly Dennis too....Dyakowski and Clarke are another year older..and closer to being less than average than average....not to mention as it sits they have 35% of their cap tied up in what..8 or 9 guys?/

Yeah...bigtime getting better

You seem to have difficulty understanding things, I know now from your past comments that you are truly benighted and again, I say if you don't like what I post, please feel free to not read it. When someone posts something you don't like to read, you go on the attack. If Zack C. can have a good season from a change of scenery, then as much as it will make me sick, the Riders will be a strong contender in the west whether you want to admit it or not.

So? If our defence costs us another season, I am saying changes will need to be made, which could include Walters scouting department if we still have holes at various positions that have existed for awhile

I hope if MOS/Walters brings in Hurl only as a STer if at all ( hope not at all) that they don't plan on also using him as a backup MLB because we don't know how good JSK would be at that spot in the CFL. JSK played it before but not here in the CFL, and we all know that MOS and Hall are still in charge. There are 3 proven MLB available this year in FA so we will see what happens on Tuesday.

LOL Cheesy

Nice job getting defensive. You sure get upset easily.

It's hilarious how I contested your opinion and made a joke, and the best you can do is go full-blown ad hominen, and tell me to just ignore the content you post. That really says a lot about a person.

So, Collaros gets a change of scenery. Big deal. The Riders' O-line still isn't that good. Carter's legal issues are a distraction the team doesn't need, and this coming barely a month after he signed a contract extension worth more money. Hughes, as I said already, is a good acquisition to the D-line. But he didn't come cheap.

Sorry you're in such a foul mood, Horsie.

The Riders have not fixed any of their weaknesses. They spent bucket loads of cash fixing problems they didnt have. Will Collaros pass for 6000 yards like Glenn/Bridges did? Doubtful. Will Hughes be better than Antigha without a middle to the DL. Doubtful. They have shed talent to the NFL and have done nothing to fix a porous OL. They have not improved at all...theyve just changed players.

If Zack returns to form this year, the Riders are going to be tough.  they started slow last year, but really came on. They will start this year off with real running backs and a very good set of receivers.

now they are going to lose a couple of guys, as you point out, but they are going to have a chance to replace them in free agency.  Unless they muff it, they should be able to get a good DB or two.

I think they have a hole at DT, and they may be relying on Bladek to step up and start instead of Clark and that could be a vulnerability.  Bagg is another year older, and if they don't re-sign Demski, their NI content is thinned out a bit.  And of course, if Zack doesn't return to form, they will have problems.

I am not saying they are winning the division, but at this stage I don't see any dogs in the West.  Any of the 5 teams could finish first or last.  Even the Stamps.  They are turning over some key veterans, and if Bo were to bust an ankle their QB options are scary.
